Patchwork Friday

a withering stalk of gladiolus. a cherished gesture from a long lost classmate. a blue dreamcatcher hung whimsically on a potted palm. flashbacks of a Utah getaway, an orangish September. gaping silver pomfret at the local fish market, one makes its way into our home. Saturday smells great already. steaming chicken momos. a trusted cure for overcast, moody days. a neglected pair of silver earrings. the turquoise winks at me from the rusty corners of a forgotten trinket box.

Invoking memory and inviting the present, I gather these small joys or the more poetic - little somethings. Patch by patch, frame upon frame, I weave my Friday for that much awaited weekend, that just comes and goes in a wild flicker. 

Happy Weekend, you all!

PS: Instagram has soon become my photographic mainstay, and as you can see from the above pictures, it tells the tales well. For more such tales you can visit here.


  1. Hello Suman:
    This post is an absolute delight both for its wonderful images and for its concise, yet so evocative, text. With such pictures and few words we are transported ahead of time to welcome in the weekend in the most joyous of ways.

    Kellemes hétvégét.

    1. Dear Jane and Lance, thank you for the lovely compliment. Hope you are having a lovely weekend too, too bad we are almost at the end of it.

      PS: Thank you for teaching me some good Hungarian.

  2. Dear Suman. This post is wonderful. The small joys are so precious and underestimated by a lot of people. A flower, a mouth-watering dish, a beautiful object or pair of earrings. They are valuable things! Your pictures are great too!

    1. Merci, dear Celine for the all the nice things you always say. Small joys are what keep us going, I agree; if one were to depend on the larger celebrations, life would become really drab.
